How to Sell Crypto from Hardware Wallet (Ledger, Trezor)?

How to sell Bitcoin with a hardware wallet?

There are various ways to sell the Bitcoins you hold in your hardware wallet.

The easiest ways include:

  • send your coins to an exchange and sell them for fiat on their platform
  • direct trade or perform a peer-to-peer transaction on some P2P marketplace.
  • You can also withdraw fiat money by means of a Bitcoin ATM,
  • or exchange Bitcoin in person.

Two of the most popular hardware wallets, Ledger and Trezor, also implemented a solution on their apps to sell coins directly from the wallet. Let’s look at how that works.

Install Exchange and Bitcoin apps on your hardware wallet

And you’re done.
